Cancer Support Community Benefit Concert Event on March 4
Brian D'Arcy James

In July 2009, The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club Worldwide joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community (CSC), an international non-profit providing support, education and hope to millions of people touched by cancer.

If you are in the NYC area, please join TogoRun in supporting CSC’s work by attending an intimate concert event featuring Tony-nominated, Broadway (Next to Normal) and TV (Smash) star, Brian d’Arcy James, on Monday, March 4, between 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Tickets are available online or by contacting Christina Raia at 646-600-7560.
